Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Recap & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Followup

Only seven trading days have elapsed since we slated some longer-term Apple options ideas for observation on the 1st of this month. We were looking at the AAPL 06/01 $167.50 & $170 Calls and we’re pleased to return just over a week later to report that AAPL has mounted a heck of a seven day upswing, facilitating some fantastic gains in our flagged contracts.

So far the $167.50′s have traded in a range from 4.36-19.98, an increase of 358%, while the $170′s exploded 435% from 3.30 to 17.64.



Trip Advisor, Inc. TRIP Weekly $45.50 & $46 Calls

We also had some fresh options ideas in yesterday’s morning report, the TRIP Weekly $45.50 & $46 Calls. What we got from those, was a highly respectable intraday performance.

The $45.50 Calls surged up from .85-2.30 for a single-session rip of 170%, and the $46′s ran from 1.35-2.77, a 105% pop.



Helios & Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We want to place HMNY on intensive bottom watch this morning after noticing the setup on the chart. The stock has been absolutely punished over the past couple of trading days, and as you can see below, the RSI is now in heavily oversold territory.

The last time the stock was this oversold, at the beginning of April, it recorded an upswing of over 100% so we’ll want to keep an eye on its activities. at least for the remainder of the week, and possibly longer.

ROKU Weekly $38-40 Calls
FARO 05/18 $50 & $55 Calls

Then yesterday, we followed up with another set of ideas based on the performance of the stock, signaling the AAPL Weekly $172.50 & $175 Calls.

Fresh Idea: TSLA Weekly $285-277.50 Puts


Beyond Commerce, Inc. BYOC

We like the setup of the current chart on BYOC, so we wanted to include this one as well. Its setup is currently sporting several key indicators that we always look for, and have also pointed out on the chart below.

We’ll put the stock on watch in coming sessions; with a break past the current 50DMA of .10, things could get interesting. We noted the prior resistance around .16, which would represent a nice gain from current levels if the stock were to return there.

________

Eleven Biotherapeutics, Inc. EBIO

To round things off with another successful stock call we made recently, we have EBIO, which we initially alerted on April 23rd at 1.86. Yesterday, after its fourth straight bullish session, EBIO hit 3.50, marking a move of 88% in just eight trading days.

Eleven Biotherapeutics, Inc. EBIO

Our most recent mention of EBIO came just a week ago on April 23rd, and we felt it was time this morning to come back to this play and comment on the excellent performance we’ve seen from it since then.

Our observed low on the stock was 1.83 on the 23rd, and it hasn’t looked back, reaching a high of 2.86, which represents a respectable upswing of 56%


Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc. SGSI

Last but not least, we have SGSI, which we slated for observation on April 25th, and from thoe low we observed that day of .0055, we’ve seen a solid double-bagger from the stock as it has run to a high of .012, for a 118% rise.

SGSI reached that high yesterday on over 10X the average volume, in addition to there being quite a bit of From-4 activity in the company’s disclosure feed. We’ll continue to keep our eye on it.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

Post Earnings Options Review

Our premarket report on Friday focused on two sets of options ideas from companies which had just posted earnings beats that morning. As it turns out, there was a big time opportunity in each of them.

General Electric Co. GE - We signaled the GE Weekly $14-15 Calls, and it was the $14 and $14.50′s that produced solid chances to profit from that idea. The $14′s ran 106% from .36-.74, and the $14.50 really shined with a move from .03 to .25, a whopping gain of 733%
___

HoneyWell International, Inc. HON – We also highlighted our interest in tracking the HON Weekly $150 & $152.50 Calls for possible day-trades, and while the 152.50′s didnt see a lot of action, the $150′s were a perfect idea, trading in a mind boggling range from .01 to .52, a 5100% single session gain! Big cheers to anyone who caught a piece of that action!


Hasbro, Inc. HAS

Hasbro came out with their quarterly earning report which disappointed, according to the company, because of the Toys ‘R Us shutdown. The stock had already registered a new 52 week low on Friday after nearly two months of backsliding, and we’re still thinking it has a ways to fall.

That’s why we’re going to adopt a bearish stance and signal the HAS Weekly $78-76 Puts to start of this new trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APC Review & More

Versartis, Inc. VSAR

It isn’t just bullish activity that draws us to a stock. Any type of increase in volatility generally causes us to take note, and the rapid fashion in which VSAR is crashing this morning is about as volatile as it gets. The company failed to meet primary endpoints on its HGH study, and the stock fell through the floor, losing over 80% of its value thus far.

Regardless of the catalyst, whenever such a huge selloff occurs in such a hurried way, we go into bottom-watch mode, and wait for the eventual bounce. So we’ll have VSAR on our radars moving forward, watching for signs of solid support and subsequent rebound.


Anadarko Petroleum Corp. APC

The announcement of an enormous 10% share reduction via buyback program had exactly the effect we suspected it would yesterday, after we signaled a range of calls to observe in our premarket report.

Those targets were the APC 09/29 $47-48.50 Calls and each of them made a move to the upside. We also mentioned we’d be watching them beyond yesterday’s session, and sure enough the stock appears to want to gap up this morning and add to the gains we’ve already witnessed, which were as follows:

$47 Calls – Range: 1-1.60 – Max Gain: 60%
$47.50 Calls - Range: 1.29-1.40 – Max Gain: 9%
$48 Calls – Range:.62-.95 – Max Gain: 53%
$48.50 Calls – Range: .50-.83 – Max Gain: 66%
